Pine Cone Bird Snack Feeder


Be ready to welcome the birds with snacks at the end of the cold winter. Or even during winter as some birds stay all year. Try making this Pine Cone Bird Snack with your little ones and enjoy watching the birds that come for a snack.


Now is a great time to welcome the birds with a snack as they relocate to your neighborhoods or continue on their journeys north. Enjoy time with your little ones as you make this Pine Cone Bird Snack.


You will need:
• One pine cone
• Enough string for hanging
• Honey or peanut butter
• Bird Seed (small granules work best)
• One sandwich bag with zip closure large enough for your pine cone
• Depending on the size of the pine cone you might need a quart or gallon size bag
• Newspaper, plastic wrap, or other material to protect the work surface and make clean up a cinch

Shake all the dust off the pine cone. Hold the widest part up and tie a string just under the first set of pine scales. You will need a long piece of string so you can tie it up into the tree.

Put the pine cone on a paper plate and drizzle honey into the nooks of the scales. You can also just choose to use your finger to spread peanut butter into all the nooks of the pine cone.

Fill a sandwich bag with bird seed, and drop the pine cone into the bag and seal it. Shake the bag so that the entire cone becomes covered with seeds.

Take out of the bag, tie a bright red bow at the top of the pine cone as it will hang – this is actually the bottom of the cone, but the cone will be hung upside down. The bright red color will help attract the birds.

Hang outdoors in your desired location and then wait for the feathered visitors. Enjoy a bird watching book or bird coloring book to help you come to identify birds as they come for a snack.
